However, Palace did lay down a marker when they hammered Blues legend Frank Lampard’s Everton 4-0 in the quarter-final.

Fortunately for Chelsea, they will not have to face Crystal Palace’s main man Conor Gallagher, as he is on loan from Stamford Bridge and ineligible to face his parent club.

And the South London club have their first chance to reach a final since 2016.
